  1. I am not opposed to the idea of a endgame for void mages, heck, I think if done right it could be something thats extremely fun and interesting. However, it being done the ‘right way’ is the overall problem. Standardly, the bulk of void magic (that being telekinesis, evocation, conjuration, illusion, arcanism, etc) is either combative, or used to gain power over other characters. As such, past voidal ‘endgames’ have been somewhat in the same vein, which I view as being a massive issue. A character gaining ‘power’ in an endgame thing is not something I am opposed to, however, it is important to define what this power is over, whether self (one’s awareness, self control, state of body, knowledge, etc), power over one’s environment (powers allowing one to affect or change the world, items, physical concepts, etc) or power over other players. (abilities that allow one to better control, or overpower in combat characters played by others.) Making an endgame that gives a mage more power over other players, to me, is the worst way to go, and I think exploring more outside the box concepts would be prudent. The lore of LOTC is surprisingly allowing of many ingenious, or many times wacky concepts. I think taking time to consider something that would both prove interesting, and be able to change how someone roleplays said ‘endgame’ mage drastically would be the best path to take in formulating an ‘endgame’, rather than putting what ‘power’ they could have.
  2. Yooo! Long time no see! Dont really have a group to offer you, though just wanted to say its good to see you back.
  3. When Arcas began, and after I had gotten myself settled, I began to map out Arcas, and sell the maps I had made. A month or two ago, through sheer curiosity, I mapped out the entirety of Arcas. During my time mapping Arcas, I found: 2 event sites, both of which were un-interactable, but just had weird things. 1 natural cave. 1 abandoned pre-built town 1 unaccessable area. ... And thats it really... Other than the player-made builds-... theres not really that much to find. Though there is some crazy wildlife- such is copy pasted around the map far too much for there to be much uniqueness.
  4. Yo, whose making the Tahu’tahn weapons? Need to get some SERIOUS clarifications on the ‘crystal mace’ items.

  5. Incorrect, guards are needed for standard upkeep of a nation, both for the upholdence of the law and for any exterior threats, whether event related, random players, or invaders from other nations. Mayhaps, yet bandits themselves are not dealt with in a realistic fashion. This may be due to the roleplay quality that bandits do, or it may simply be due to how the world of LOTC is an acts, given death is by no means permanent. If a bandit was killed in the real world- they’d be dead, and dead for good, the same for the victims. Brigandry did exist in the middle ages, dark ages, and rennaissance, however, it was not so common that nearly every single person in the world had dealt with atleast one bandit. Banditry consists of threatening, stealing, and killing if the other 2 dont necessarily work out. It is literally arming yourself, and taking the possessions of others. If you’re under the impression banditry, especially on a server by which everyone you meet is another player, should be easy, than you’re gravely mistaken. I am simply going to let those 2 quotes sit right next to eachother. Mayhaps you should make ban reports if there is very blatant and provable evidence of meta-gaming. There is unfathomable amount of things to roleplay about on this server, banditry can be one of them, a catalyst for conflict , yes, but far from the only thing. The issue is example #2 is probably the most ideal for the victim, which would seemingly be increasingly rare. Its been noted in quite a few comments above how commonly a character is killed from banditry, which would simply have it end : “So I complied with their demands--“ JUMPCUT “I’m going to travel to Sutica, bu I dont have anything I had earlier and im at the cloud temple. Huh, must’ve been murdered randomly.” The problem with that analogy is that the bandits in Skyrim are meant to be beaten. There would be far greater complaints if those random encounters comprised not of maybe a few low level, easilly killable bandits, but a half dozen bandits above your level, who would than kill you if you didnt give every single item of value, and every single gold coin (rather than the standard ‘pay up 50 septims’), and than have a 50/50 chance to still be hostile, kill you, and than send you back to riverwood with completely nothing on you. I’d urge you to consider that perhaps the topic of banditry may be well included within said conflict rules, and that the opinions of people who roleplay on LOTC (commonly dubbed: Rpers) may infact be needed to inform these new conflict rules? If you think such, make a player report or such, though it would seem that your banned status speaks for itself to the validity of that claim . However, its a wee bit rude to only say that when replying to a comment and not discuss a single point brought up from such.
  6. Loot based banditry has been my bane on my time on LOTC. It is not looked at with fear, or as a challenge to be overcome, but as a chore, a tedious mess. It is a pain to fight with bandits, it is a pain to circumnavigate around with bandits, even capitulating to bandits and letting your things be taken, its a coinflip whether they shall decide to murder your character or let them go. Even moreso, the vast majority of bandits arnt random rag-tag brigands hiding away from society in the woods-... They’re people in full order uniforms, acting the will of some militairy or religeous order. I have had interactions with bandits roughly about 13 times within the past 2 months, of those times, only 2 of those 13 were not comprised of many members of one established order in matching uniforms. These arnt in-character bandits banditting- these’re just random joes who already have a 9-to-5 deciding to go attack the travelling townies for loot... It doesnt help that these bandits do their best to bend the rules to try and have things go in their favor. (Claiming defender default if someone attacks first to a raised weapon) This is so common, I even managed to catch it on stream a good bit ago.
  7. Favorite and least favorite period/location's history? (For example, 12th century england, etc)
  8. A poster is nailed onto the cloud temple trade board. BRONZE COMMISSIONS: Due to a upcoming project requiring a rather extreme sum of mina to complete, I am opening up commissions. Send a letter to the ‘Very Good Bronze’ cart infront of Sutica to make a commission inquiry, and get a quote. WARNING: If you ask for something that is unwieldy or unusable, I will request exact specifications and make the item to meet such. I will not be denying commissions for stupid useless items. The burden of design is on the head of the commissioner. [Send a forum PM to Quavinir_Twiceborn to send a letter, discord and ingame inquiries will go largely unanswered.] [Useable ingame tools and weapons, given enchantment glow, named, and descriptioned.] Weapons and hafted tools: The carving a of a new mold will cost 1,000 mina, there after, every single item made with said mold will cost between 15-40 mina. There is no upward limit on how many items can be made with said mold. If the mold breaks or cracks, a replacement mold shall be made, with no additional charge to the customer. Items made with already present molds shall only require the fee of production. Weapons and tools may be made of: Tin Bronze: Standard bronze, work hardened. Kuila Bronze: Tin bronze mixed with kuila dust. Glows dimly when held by a casting druid. Bismuth Bronze: Bronze mixed with bismuth crystals, is notably resistant to environmental wear. Arsenical Bronze: Bronze mixed with arsenic, superior work-hardening, yet a chore to make. (5% additional cost for items made of arsenical bronze.) Red Bronze: Low tin bronze, notable ruddy color, inferior hardness and increased bendibility. The wood used for the handles and hafts of the weapons and tools will be to the bronzesmith’s discretion, unless specifically requested otherwise by the customer. Should the customer request a notably difficult to obtain, or difficult to work wood, additional fees may be charged. [Wearable custom playerheads, named, and described] Masks and Helmets: The Carving of a new mold for cast helmets and masks will cost 1,000 mina, there after, every single item made will cost between 35-40 mina. For the creation of beat bronze helmets and masks, there shall be no mold carving fee, yet every item shall cost between 150-200 mina. Masks and Helmets may be made of: Tin Bronze: Standard bronze, work hardened. Kuila Bronze: Tin bronze mixed with kuila dust. Glows dimly when held by a casting druid. Bismuth Bronze: Bronze mixed with bismuth crystals, is notably resistant to environmental wear. Arsenical Bronze: Bronze mixed with arsenic, superior work-hardening, yet a chore to make. (5% additional cost for items made of arsenical bronze.) Red Bronze: Low tin bronze, notable ruddy color, inferior hardness and increased bendibility. [Place-able, and unplacable items, can do custom player-heads on request.] Daily Items, Idols, Ornaments, and Un-hafted Tools: The carving of a new mold for cast daily items, idols, ornaments, and un-hafted tools, will cost 1,000 mina, and depending on size and complexity, will cost between 5-100 mina for each item. Beat bronze items shall forgo the carving price, yet cost between 10-200 mina, depending upon the complexity. Notes and terms: Commissions involving rare or precious stones or metals shall require the commissioner to provide such. Half the mina fee shall be payed upfront to the bronzesmith, and upon completion of the item the other half of the fee shall be required. One may cancel their order at any time, yet depending upon how far along the work is, the customer may only recieve a partial refund. The carving fee, once the mold is complete, is nonrefundable. [Should one wish for an album of the RP item’s creation to be made, I would be more than willing to provide such.] -Bronzesmith Quavinir.
  9. PREAMBLE: The object this post is proposing be added to the server was a previously created, and developed item in roleplay, and was RP’d out on the server for a good few years, before being moved to the outdated section. This post is simply to meet modern lore standards, as to allow this object to be created in character once more. The old, outdated lore can be found here: The ‘Anthosian Pin-hole Camera’, otherwise known at the time as a ‘Sap Photo-Cell Device’ was an invention made by the ingenios ‘Sil Iyat’ in the early years of the land of Anthos. The basis of the device is a unique Anthosian plant, referred to by many names, though most commonly known as the ‘light-sap-flower’, or ‘light-sap-plant’. A small, orchid like flower plant , found uncommonly in plains and verdant meadows, that excreted a thin, sap like film of sap from its leaves and stem. Initially thought lost due to the destruction of Anthos, the light-sap-plant was long thought dead and gone from the world, the sap-photo-cell-device gone with it. yet, the lands of Arcas bear many surprises within its rolling hills and mountains, for springing up alongside other plants, the light-sap-plant can once again be seen peeking its white petalled head out from the meadows. The Item’s Creation: (The following is the original account of the pin-hole camera’s creation, by Sil Ilyat.) How it works: The sap of the light-sap-plant will change color over time in reaction to any notable sources of light. The sap is somewhat sticky, and akin to ink in texture and consistancy. The sap may be gathered from the stem and leaves of the plant (which it will replenish over the course of a week or so.) and spread across a substance or surface receptive to such (paper, parchment, papyrus, etc). This sap drenched ‘paper’ must than be inserted, and sealed into a opaque box or device, with only one entry point for light to come in across from the sapped paper. The sap’s reaction to light is slow, and not especially visible to the naked eye, taking roughly 15 minutes or more for any reaction to be visible, and no less than half an hour for any image to be seen. The sap is reactive to light so long as it is wet, the moment it dries, the sap retains any hue gained or lost from exposure to light, and shall change no further. If the sap were to be wetted once more after drying, it will regain its light sensitivity once more. The sap, for the most part, may be gathered, and preserved within a ceiled bottle, where it shall retain its wetness and light sensitive qualities indefinitely. Depending on the amount of sap deposited onto the paper, the sap can take upwards of an hour to fully dry, though never taking any less than half an hour. For any ‘picture’ one wishes to take, one must have the camera secured firmly in place, its subject well lit, with both the camera itself, and its subject remaining still for no less for 30 minutes, lest the ‘picture’ simply come out simply as a depiction of a blurry, greyish mass. Red lines: -Camera can only take black and white pictures of objects. (Cant be taking color pictures) -Camera requires sufficient lighting to take pictures of objects. (Cant be taking pictures in the night or in dark places.) -Camera requires an exposure time of no less than 30 minutes, with both it, and the subject of the picture remaining still for the duration. (Cant be taking pictures of a moving, or wiggly person or object. Requires stillness to the highest degree. Cant just be snapping pictures of people, places or things, takes preparation, time, and stillness.)
  10. I can only forsee these war rules failing to an extreme degree. Standards are an important thing, and being vague with said standards leaves such to individual interpretation, and inconsistancies.

  11. Please... dear god- if you’re going to remove so much actively played stuff in the server- please provide a suitable replacement. You’ve asked communities to make rewrites, and when that didnt happen instead of /making some form of interim rewrite for the substantial communities- it was decided to simply do away with them./ You’re the story team, but so many of the changes made have the world of LOTC significantly less coherent, and thus a less believable story. Hard shelving of so many creatures, instead of some form of nerfing or rewrite was done insanely. I am probably extremely lucky to be least affected by it, but so many people I know werent. With the upcoming lore games, I am left not hopeful for things finally being kept to a consistent standard- but simply anxious, expecting more shelvings and retcons, and worrying that such might severely affect my- or the roleplay of close friends. Give us these standards A S A P. This mystery isnt fun, its anxiety inducing. P.S: (sorry for being a bit rambly but I’ve just a wee bit more to express) The sheer amount of insanely powerful things on this server is baffling. MArts, creatures, and magics with the capabilities to be properly undefeatable in most circumstances. While I can be fine with such existing, it makes the shelving of so many lesser, and more feeble things seem downright stupid. Actual soul-bearing robots with the abilities to shoot actual star wars esque lasers capable of blasting through plate mail, flesh, and stone in 1-2 emotes is ok... but gibberish speaking faeries arnt...
